Weekly Water Statistics 1 November 2017

The George Municipality Drought Management Plan stipulates the current Section 2C restrictions which limits households to 15 kilolitres per month before emergency tariffs are charged) stay in place for at least two months from the time the Garden Route Dam rises to above 45%, which was confirmed on 18 September 2017 – provided the conditions consistently remain above the Section 2C requirements and the town’s immediate water security remains satisfactory. The two-month period ends on 18 November 2017, which coincides with the summer holiday period, which will be one of the factors considered before a decision is made regarding restriction measures.

The implications of the current SECTION 2C restrictions include:

·     Households shall be limited to 15 kilolitres per month (flow reducing devices will be installed where limits are exceeded). Emergency tariffs will apply if users exceed the 15 kilolitre limit.

·     Other users, businesses and entertainment industries must reduce consumption by 15% of their average use over the previous six months. This includes commercial car washes and other businesses dependent on municipal water. Emergency tariffs apply as well as the possibility of a fine if overall consumption is not reduced by 15%.

·     Large industries must reduce consumption by 10% of their average use over the previous six months. Emergency tariffs apply as well as the possibility of a fine if overall consumption is not reduced by 10%.

·     Gardens may only be watered using watering cans or buckets, any time of the day.

·           The irrigation/watering of ALL sportsfields using municipal water is prohibited.

·           Washing of vehicles with a garden hose with municipal water is prohibited. Buckets are allowed.

·           Cleaning of any outside surface area using a water hose with municipal water is prohibited.

·           Filling up of swimming pools with municipal water is prohibited.

·           Where own water from a borehole or reservoir is used ‘OWN WATER’ signage must be displayed, and officials may ask for proof of own water.

·     Emergency tariffs for other users (such as schools, old age homes etc) shall be 1.5 times more as per their specific published tariff as per the annual municipal tariffs list.

Please report water leaks, burst pipes and other water-related concerns to our Civil Engineering Department, at  044 801 9262 or after hours at 044 801 6300, as soon as you notice them.
